MEMBER: Creswell Crags Museum and Heritage centre

Creswell Crags is a picturesque Magnesium Limestone gorge located on the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire county border. The gorge is honeycombed with caves and smaller fissures, and is a wonderful, serene and beautiful site to explore with the whole family.

During the last Ice Age, between 50,000 and 10,000 years ago, Creswell Crags was among the most northerly places on earth to have been visited by our ancient ancestors, a story that is unique on a European and World scale. Wooly mammoths roamed the lands around Creswell Crags, and nomadic Neanderthal man sought shelter in Creswell Crags’ caves whilst they were following these migrating animals.

Home to Britain’s only known example of Ice Age cave art, dated 13,000 years old, it is simply dripping in history and wills to be explored.

Cave tours to this incredible site run throughout the week, so why not transport yourself back in time, immerse yourself in the history and beauty of Creswell Crags, and see artefacts, hand tools, and other fascinating things they left behind.
